Quick Random Notes


Tags: , , , , ,
The weather here has been absolutely gorgeous this week. If it could stay like this all the time, I'd be very happy. The only two minor complaints I have on that front is that it is starting to get dark annoyingly early for going for a run after working for the day and I really should go to the gym for weights and swimming rather than running all the time but it is so nice that I just want to head into the woods not into a building. Like I said, minor complaints.

I updated to the new iPhone software. I don't care about all the cosmetic changes. They are different and a shock to the system but I'll adjust to them and they aren't inherently better or worse than the previous ones, just new. That said, there are dozens of minor functionality changes that have all broken things that worked just fine, hidden features I used regularly behind additional file layers, etc. Why do tech companies always do that? Do they care at all about how people actually use a product?

Yesterday was the birthday of a friend of mine. She and some other friends came over to my place to celebrate so I was up WAY too late and am dead tired today. Please note, in my world "WAY too late" equals something like 11:15.

New official Sherlock S3 set photos. The first one is so adorable.

Neil Gaiman and the guy who adapted Gaiman's Neverwhere for BBC Radio 4 are working together on an unspecified Terry Pratchett related project. I demand more information on this project so I can get even more excited ASAP! Also, Neil Gaiman has a new kid's book out this week. I've bought it but not read it yet as I'm in the middle of Dostoevsky's The Possessed. I'll probably do the Gaiman kiddie book as soon as I'm done with Dostoevsky for a bit of a breather.

I swear there was something else I wanted to tell y'all or to which I wanted to link but now I can't remember. Let's just assume it wasn't important.

Wow, you have exciting news! :-D Can't say if I'm more excited about the Sherlock set pics or the Neil Gaiman / Terry Pratchett project! (Okay, who am I kidding? It was to be the latter! :-P) Thanks for sharing! :-)

And I'm with you on the running thing. It's fabulous weather here, too, perfect for running after work, but it's already pitch-dark right now...

That's totally me! Set photos are fun, but secret Gaiman / Pratchett project is a-whole-nother level of awesome!

The getting dark so early think is going to drive me crazy. It is still just barely doable but by the middle of next month I suspect it won't be. Oh well. I guess that, if nothing else, will force me back to the gym rather than just the trails.
